Through a combination of genetic and psychological testing, researchers have identified factors that mitigate against PTSD. In combat, soldiers who avoided threats were more likely to develop PTSD as a result of traumatic experiences, the study found.
A new study suggests carriers of a genetic mutation in the serotonin 2B receptor may be protected from obesity and insulin resistance.
Study reveals the disruptions in prenatal neurogenesis can increase the risk of autism spectrum disorder. Findings also reveal estrogen can protect against the disruption of neurogenesis and steer the embryonic brain on the course of normal development.
Using neurons created from iPS cells derived from people with ALS, researchers develop a new drug which appears to halt the impact of the genetic mutations in some forms of ALS and dementia.
